FALMOUTH’S ‘GODDAM NOBODY’ RETURNS WITH NEW ‘DEAD BEAT’ EP. OUT 24.02 ON SUPER FAN 99

Since making the move to London from his home of Cornwall a couple of years back Matthew Oliver aka Goddam Nobody has done some serious growing. Whether that was forced by the sink or swim nature of living in the UK’s capital or not we don’t know but it has sure drawn out of him his best set of songs yet and once again Super Fan will be releasing the results this February.

While 2015’s Stranger Daze EP was a bold step from his comfortable lo-fi bedroom world to hi-fi the Dead Beat EP marks another huge step on for Oliver. The shy but charming vocals of early recordings now replaced with a confident delivery that demands your attention. Layers of echo chamber BV’s tower over a tight vibrato jangle adding an eerie cloud of disappoint to Oliver’s determined vocal. It’s six songs itch with the anxiety and isolation of trying to get by in the city while lead track ‘Dead Beat’ almost leans in to 90s baggy territory with it’s stoner dance groove.

It’s an EP which borrow from the past while keeping one foot firmly in 2017. Unlike many psych revivalists it doesn’t hide in oceans of old analogue tape but embraces a clean hi-fidelty sound of today. Recorded by Benjamin Woods (Holiday Ghosts) and featuring members The Red Chords, Pastel Colours and The Golden Dregs, it may of been conceived in London but very much belongs to the excellent Falmouth scene.

The Dead Beat EP will be available in boxed cassette complete with download or as a bundle which includes a limited t-shirt of which only 25 are available worldwide. If you like The Growlers, Teenage Fanclub, Brian Jonestown Massacre, a pint and smoke in a grey costal town in 1969 this is a must!
